What is the Royal Warrant? In 1929, Hardy Brothers of Australia were appointed jewellers by Royal Warrant to His Majesty, King George V. Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to people or companies who have regularly supplied goods or services for at least five years to certain members of the Royal Family. They have always been regarded as a mark of excellence and quality, and are highly prized.

olo’s Pink Pony turns 10!
2010 represents the 10th Anniversary of the international fashion designer Ralph Lauren’s Pink Pony Collection. Pink Pony is a global initiative launched by Ralph Lauren following the death of his much loved friend, Nina Hyde. His vision was and continues to be reducing the disparities in cancer care. Combining fashion with philanthropy, contributions generated from the sale of the Pink Pony Collection will go towards programs dedicated to supporting early diagnosis, education, treatment and research for medically under-resourced communities. Locally, 20% of all Pink Pony sales will directly benefit the Australian National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre. Traditionally, the collection has been specifically designed for women, but this year marks another milestone with the launch of the biggest Pink Pony Collection to date and the introduction of a new men’s capsule. Polo Ralph Lauren Pink Pony Collection in-store at MacArthur Central. Ph: 3221 3332.
Locally, the Pink Pony campaign directly benefits the Australian National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre of Australia.
Profile Instead of opening yet another lingerie store, filled with beige practical-looking lingerie, they decided to search for the most provocative local and international designers. With their lingerie inspired packaging and suggestively named products, Honey Birdette boutiques are flirty, playful and unapologetically sensual. The pair met while both working in the United Kingdom and discovered they had a mutual interest in the lingerie available in European high streets. “The idea is to give Brisbane residents their pick of unique, quality lingerie and other playthings. Our lingerie is sexy, sophisticated and exclusive,” says Ms Barboza.
SWEET HONEY In 2006 friends Janelle Barboza and Eloise Monaghan, tired of not being able to find provocative lingerie and luxury bedroom toys, set out to inject a sense of sensuality into the bedroom.
The pair have also just released Honey Birdette’s own lingerie label which has just hit the shelves. Designed with Italian fabrics Eloise says the Coco Collection - is quite unlike anything the Australian market has ever seen before, finding inspiration from visual arts and film. Dominant, striking and of course highly provocative, the collection is sure to please. View it at Honey Birdette MacArthur Central. Ph 32292669.
